Carana Beach Hotel

A boutique hotel with the Seychelles spirit

A perfectly located family owned, small boutique hotel situated on the north east coast of Mahe, rests Carana Beach Hotel. The hotel only has 40 chalets all light, bright and airy, when you open the terrace doors and spill out to views of the turquoise ocean and surrounding jungle. For more privacy we'd recommend upgrading to the Ocean View Chalets with their own private plunge pool. Carana Beach Hotel's main pool is the perfect spot to rest up on a cabana and enjoy the food and drink service, enjoy casual dining at the main bar and in the evening the main restaurant is the idyllic spot to enjoy the warm sea breeze whilst sampling the menu inspired and sourced from the family owners farm. The small spa is a haven of relaxation and wellness contributing to your true Seychellois experience.

Beautiful Property, Views, and Welcoming Staff

Atlanta, Georgia

A coworker recommended we stay at the Carana Beach Hotel. I feel like I owe her a finders fee given how wonderful our stay turned out. We will definitely be back to Seychelles and we already know that we will be staying at the Carana Beach Hotel. As beautiful as the property, beach, rooms (we had one with a private pool! 👍) are, the real attraction of the hotel is the service provided by the staff. Everyone greeted us with smiles (front desk, restaurant, pool, bar, grounds keepers, cleaners) and a consistently expressed desire to meet our needs. Maureen, at the front desk, helped us get the most out of our stay on Mahe. As busy parents, we had not arranged excursions ahead of time. It was all we could do to pack and make our plane. Maureen helped us arrange 2 last minute all-day getaways and an all-day tour of Mahe. We were able to see 4 islands, a ton of beautiful beaches, snorkle, feed fish, eat fresh fish on the beach, bike, and more. But, the most impressive indicator of their service level is how they handled my gf's allergy. She is deathly allergic to white potatoes, which are often included in currys. After being prompted, we notified Maureen of this allergy on check-in. Without our knowledge, she called ahead to our excursions to warn them. When we showed up at the buffets, they knew we were coming and had updated the food choices to ensure she could partake in all but one dish! We have never had service like this. I could go on and on. In summary, we definitely will return to Seychelles. It has the most beautiful beaches, lush environment, and welcoming people we have experienced. And, we will definitely stay at the Carana Beach Hotel.
